“Wanting people to listen, you can’t just tap them on the shoulder anymore. You have to hit them with a sledgehammer, and then you’ll notice you’ve got their strict attention ~John Doe, from the movie Se7en (1995)” via Benjamin WL

The more I think about it, the more accurate I recognize this to be. But knowing it to be true is making me feel sad :-/
Refocus on the beautiful day, with cool air and bright lovely sunshine and colored leaves making crispy noises in the breeze. Also, strangely light traffic this morning — but it’s a work and school day, so why?
I should have a category here called “rambles”. Perhaps it simply goes without saying. Well, it has. I feel like I’ve not done this in a while.
I cut my hair the other day. And again the next day and next, because I had been really hasty and it was really uneven and then still uneven and then it’s close to where it should be now although shorter and still quite uneven but apparently unnoticeably so to others which works out fine.
Would’ve liked some chocolate chip cookies today but they were a bit overcooked so not nearly as enticing as the undercooked alternatives.
*update a few hours later. Some of the cookies were not overcooked and they are delicious.
Today’s a Happy Hour day.
People make the place. Always have. Applies to a single individual as well.
News is too often depressing.

Essential Android Apps 2011

L pointed me to this article http://www.zdnet.com/blog/mobile-news/5-android-apps-that-should-be-on-every-smartphone/3023

I installed LauncherPro early on and liked it, but found it was just a layer over my existing UI, and wasn’t dramatically better enough to accept the potential decreases in performance and weird flashes caused by having layered UIs. I uninstalled.
I didn’t like Beautiful Widgets. too much going on.
Amazon MP3 I have. I question considering that an essential ap, though.
I tried Dolphin Browser HD, but ended up much happier with Miren Browser.
Multicon Widget I had and loved before the new phone reboot, but I did not bother reinstalling and setting up again on the new phone because the setup and making modifications are a pain in the @$$. It does allow you to lay out your screens more as you want (fit more items in more rows and columns than default allows (default on my phone is four rows of four columns (across five screens that you can flick through); I miss the multicon layout but not the setting up, and I prefer the flexibility of easily moving things around as is possible without relying on it. Also, I tend to use three screens; I leave the end screens empty (I use when I want to add things on the fly).

I have Tasker but I think it may be causing crashes/instability so I uninstalled again.

Google Maps
